I'm the filmmaker who did the video on vimeo, part of our upcoming film WildWater, a Love Story.

Just want to point out that Tristan McClaren and James Byrd DID run the incomprehensible piece of whitewat that is Jacob's Ladder/Gold Course at 8K, Tristan we filmed running it. I have filmed whitewater all over and seen a lot. But nothing compared to that - I stood there with Doug Ammons and the North Fork crew (who were walking it) - and almost could not believe it. 1 solid MILE of non stop, class 5+ (6?) power and chaos. There is one shot of tristan in it in the teaser - looking from above (the only place you can see it all) where the bell rings in the video.

These guys deserve recognition for in my mind, and many others, one of the most significant runs in history. James' was clean, Tristan was upside down once.

Top to bottom would not take 3 hours at that level, we filmed as they ran, and it was much faster.

That crew is also super humble, helpful, positive, kind and deserves recognition for that as much as their athleticism.
